I love Nicki Minaj, guys. I think she is one of the most entertaining people in pop culture right now, seriously. Yes, she is bizarre and I am aware that she can be ridiculous, but I admittedly always felt super excited whenever her songs would come on while I was dancing at a party during college (yes, I am lame, I know). That said, I’m not sure how I feel about these topless photos of Ms. Minaj that she posted on Instagram today:
In the photos, Minaj makes her signature “I have zero control over my facial muscles” expressions. She also added in some leopard-patterned star-shaped pasties and the caption, “Should I add #Pasties to the Spring Collection????” (I say, “Yes,” because they would undoubtedly be fascinating.)
I am now reminded that I need to do something cool to my hair because it’s boring. :(
And perhaps something else to my face, because it is also boring. :( :(
Now, I think I’m a little weirded out by the facial expressions, but then again, it is Nicki Minaj and she kind of makes those all of the time. Perhaps I’m merely jealous because I am 100% positive I would have looked ridiculous — and not in a good way — should I ever have tried to pull this business off. Honestly, they’re infinitely better than most celebrity selfies, so let’s all give some thanks to Nicki Minaj for being more interesting than almost every other entertainer on Instagram, even when she’s doing something ultra-normal (for celebs, at least).
